and to the republicans, and then you pull back because nancy pelosi and harry reid say don't do it, and now you're attacking republicans for proposing exactly what you proposed to them, and bob woodward has in a document! >> well, i have a healthy suspicion the moderator's probably read bob's book. and he's a great moderator. that's why i think this debate will be fascinating because i think there are some really good questions that you've just raised that will be raised tonight. >> and by the way, you can also ask mitt romney, mike barnicle, why is it that you're not proposing any reform for medicare and social security? >> you know, this discussion is actually kind of fascinating when you listen to it because it gets to, i think, one of the larger points about this election. if you put your ear to the ground, not in washington, not to politicians or other journalists, if you put your ear to the ground, you get the sense that this election really is about the american people asking one question of both candidates, where are you going to take us, and how much is it going to cost? and that's wha
